With four decades worth of roles in over 70 films, John Cusack will share stories from his career, answer audience questions and give a behind-the-scenes look into “High Fidelity.” The hit comedy “High Fidelity” is the story of record shop owner Rob Gordon (John Cusack) on a search for love (and the reasons behind his failed relationships) against a backdrop of over 70 songs spanning multiple decades and genres of music. With – or without – the help of his record store buddies Dick (Todd Luiso) and Barry (Jack Black’s breakout role), Rob revisits past relationships in hopes of figuring out where he has gone wrong. The film was shot in Chicago in 1999 and Chicagoans will recognize cultural locations from the Wicker Park, Lakeview and Uptown neighborhoods. Released in 2000, The New York Times praised Cusack as “a master at easygoing camaraderie.” Rotten Tomatoes has “High Fidelity” ranked number 14 on the list of Best Romantic Comedies.
